Join award-winning children’s author Oliver Sykes on Saturday 17 February for his latest performance Fishing for Rainbows, a funny and heart-warming show featuring fearless fishing action, surprising plot twists, compelling characters and an inspiring girl-hero.

On Monday 19 February astronomer Mark Thompson will be presenting his Spectacular Science Show, taking you on an extraordinary journey into the realms of scientific discovery

Or why not try one of our Popstar Parties – a fantastic VIP experience that puts your kids and their friends centre-stage with a recording session in our state-of-the-art music studio!
